Storms, wet conditions a concern for some North Dakota crops; spring wheat doing well overall


FARGO, North Dakota — Storms over the past week with strong winds, heavy rain and hail have damaged some crops in central and eastern North Dakota.

The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop report that persistent wet conditions also are causing disease concerns in some crops.

The state's staple spring wheat crop is still doing well overall, however. The crop is rated 82 percent in good to excellent condition.

Pasture and range conditions statewide are rated 80 percent good to excellent. Stock water supplies are 96 percent adequate to surplus.
